Tips & Tricks|Setup GMail [POP] On Windows Mobile

Setting up GMail POP on Windows Mobile is really easy.
--
1st on your desktop login to your GMail account and make sure that POP Forwarding is enabled. You may find this under Settings > Forwarding and POP/IMAP
nb: if you have a fairly large inbox it would take a lot of time if you do decide to download all your messages.
--
Now to the Windows Mobile side of things.
--
Create a New Account
Input your email address [un-check the auto settings] > Next
Select Internet e-mail > Next
Input your name and what you want the account to be called -> Next
Incoming mail server: pop.gmail.com:995
Account type: POP3 -> Next
Username [full email address]
Password
Outgoing mail server: smtp.gmail.com:465
Check Outgoing server requires authentication -> Tap Advance Server Settings ->
Check Require SSL for both Incoming and Outgoing e-mail -> Done
Choose a Send/Receive schedule -> Tap Review all download settings and make your changes.

I'd suggest that you download headers only or mail only but not the attachments especially if you use DATA to connect.

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
